People are being way to harsh on this. Overall you did a damn good job, the theme was cool, the characters, clean voice acting, and fun game play. Not to mention the part in the school was a nice twist on a NG classic, you through in an intro video, ending video. how someone could have rated this a two compared to a lot of stuff on here is judging it on something other then it's quality or only watched the preloader..
and it was your first attempt at a serious flash, nice job man
After playing it all the way through there were some things you could have worked on.
on the second boss the game play was really bugged, the character wouldn't turn facing the boss sometimes and you have to jump outta it, didn't happen with the 3rd boss
the graphics were done really well in some areas, but then in other important areas you decided to go the easy route. like on the last boss, it looks like you put more work into he bg then the boss itself, and the main character walking through the map was poorly detailed compared to say the end video that looked really clean, it's important to put a lot of detail in the focal points and less in the bg if you wanna take shortcuts
other then being a little rough around the edges, which is expected for a first serious attempt at a flash game, this was a great game.
nice work man
